I'm not gonna get into the discussion part here again, said I had said my piece but do want to point out one thing I think some may not know. Mike is using a go-pro camera. I filmed on a go pro myself for a few years and for those that have not filmed on one, because of the curved lens there is a big difference in depth perception because of the fish eye lens. What looks like an object is 40' from you on go pro video is in reality closer to 10-15ft from you. So those boats that look like they are about 30ft from Mike are actually with in 10ft most likely.
That's one thing I always laughed above on my fishing videos when I filmed with my go pro, my casts on video made me look like Lefty bombing out 120' casts when in reality they were only 35' casts
